Annie Hart clawed her way to the championship and a spot on the Red Carpet Girls roster at Friday night's Drag Wars finale at Humboldt Brews. The towering, faux-hawked Hart won over the crowd and the judges (Denise Ryles, Emerald Diamond and yours truly) with her lip sync skills, her reading (trash talking) and her post-apocalyptic ensemble of tinfoil and garbage bags. As emcee Nova Six observed of the winner's DIY outfit, "Now that is a drag queen." Nova Six herself wore a gown stitched from a wedding dress her former roommate left behind — because that is what happens when you stiff a queen on your half of the rent.
